Skills / Support Groups

We offer two types of groups: skill oriented and support oriented. Skill based groups provide clients with an opportunity to interact with others as they develop and try out new skills. Support groups give the participants an opportunity to learn from one another and to know they are not alone in their struggles. Specific groups we offer include: art therapy, social thinking, emotional regulation/coping, person centered planning/transition planning, sibling support, and caregiver/parent support. Some of our groups are offered on an ongoing basis, while others are offered at specific intervals. Please contact us to get more information or to sign up for a current or upcoming group.
